Yesterday we featured a guest cottage in Guilford, Connecticut, by New Haven firm Gray Organschi Architecture; today we post an innovative and energy-efficient storage barn by the forward-thinking architects. Writing in The Architect’s Newspaper, Julie Iovine says, “A storage barn for a landscape contractor turns a simple shed into a thing of beauty by simply stacking materials—with dimensions derived from the size of a pallet—around a void determined by the turnaround space needed for a loading tractor. Ground-source heat pumps and electricity are powered by rooftop photovoltaic panels, with surplus energy to spare.”
